This is simply not true. The three terms are STATISTICALLY INDEPENDENT.
That is, there is no relationship between them. They are independent
of some overall SS. If you are doing the thing in multivariate mode,
and there are three time points, we work with CBU to test hypotheses.
U is test of multivariate (or within S), C between groups and both together
do combination. For Time, we use C = I and U=1 -1 0,1 0 -1 (one of many).
for Interaction, use C = 1 -1 and U as above.
